Sealed Up, 2008 During a visit to the Heygate Estate in Elephant & Castle, London, Anthony Wallace noticed a team of workers welding shut the front of a vacated flat with a thick sheet of metal. Welders are called in within 24 hours of residents moving out to prevent squatters entering the properties. Inside, an old armchair had been left behind. The sunken seat cushion hints at the flatís previous occupants. These photographs were taken while other flats were being sealed and are intended to preserve memories now entombed within these formerly-occupied spaces. www.seefortyone.com
